DRiVE enables UNOPS to evaluate all suppliers on the same principles and to identify and resolve the risks that are inherent in all supply chains. It serves as a risk management tool for the UNOPS supply chain, enabling greater visibility of suppliers and their activities.
DRiVE is based on a self-assessment questionnaire that is part of UNOPS procurement process. The questions and themes chosen are in accordance with the terms of the UN Supplier Code of Conduct and UNOPS organizational priorities.
It is also a tool for supplier engagement that enables UNOPS to contact suppliers with knowledge about their setup and operations. It is a starting point for all of these conversations.
